John Williams: I’m happy and willing to do Episode 7

John Williams

John Williams states that he’s ready to go.

In a much more concrete statement than previously, Williams mentions he’s already had talks with Director JJ Abrams.

  •  “We’ve certainly talked about that, and I’m happy and willing to do it,” he confirms. “J.J. Abrams, who will be the director, seems excited about the idea. I have to say that J.J. is a much younger man than I, but I will try to keep up with him as much as I can!”
    The imminent birth of a new “Star Wars” iteration intrigues Williams in general. “We now have the benefit of all this computer simulation and technical work that wasn’t even possible 20 or 25 years ago,” he reasons.
